Many refer to dogs as "man's best friend" due to the unconditional love without judgment they provide. In therapy, animals can provide a source of comfort during emotional distress as well as a gateway in healing from trauma among countless other benefits.
At Peregrine Counseling and Wellness, we have several therapy dogs: Dillon, Journey, Sarge, Bear, and Lovie. Dillon, an English golden retriever, joins Adrienne while Bear, a black lab mix, works with Katie and Lovie, the standard poodle, accompanies Ashley; Sarge the boxer joins Kendra on occasion. Journey is the newest addition to our team and in training with Rianna, she is following in the footsteps of Motley who recently crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
We do have a therapy room that is allergen-friendly and off-limits to animals.
